Philip Guston (1913-1980)100th Birthday Exhibition in Frankfurt

Guston in Frankfurt

FRANKFURT.- The bold and extraordinary oeuvre of the American painter Philip Guston (1913-1980) was one of the most widely discussed of his time. He was the first to return figuration to postwar American painting, was innovative in his combination of fine art with images from popular culture, and is today celebrated as the pioneer of postmodern, figurative painting. On the occasion of the artist’s 100th birthday, from November 6, 2013, to February 2, 2014, the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt is presenting late works by Philip Guston as a milestone of American painting. With a selection of seventy paintings and drawings, the exhibition unites loans from the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Centre Pompidou, Paris, and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. © Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, 2013 Photo: Norbert Miguletz.

  1. Did you notice that the painting in the bottom row 4th from left is the
    Coffee Cup from the permanent collection of the WAAM? It’s good that we can be part of this special international exhibition of one of
    Woodstock’s legendary artists.
